School meals workers living wage campaign

IMG_7453This is our home page for our campaign for living wage for school meals  workers  employed in Camden schools, most of whom were paid only the national minimum wage, and well short of the London living wage of £9.15 per hour. We have now won the London living wage for the vast majority of these workers, but some schools are still paying below it so the campaign continues.

The background to the campaign at Caterlink, by far the biggest contract, is here.  At Caterlink we have now achieved a minimum pay rate of £9.15 per hour:  a pay increase of up to  40% for nearly 300  mainly female  workers.   But some smaller  contractors at  other schools still pay  well below this, so  please continue to support our campaign.

All the information and updates about the campaign are here:
